Chandler Aggravated Assault Lawyers

The crime of Aggravated Assault is a very serious felony offense in Arizona. If convicted, you can expect severe penalties that could include jail or prison time. In addition, you should expect hefty fines, restitution, and probation which is sometimes imposed even after incarceration. If convicted, you will also have a criminal record that will likely have a negative impact on your ability to find employment, rent an apartment, and other areas where a background check may be required. You will also lose your right to possess a firearm, which in some cases can be permanent.

In Arizona, assault is defined as knowingly or recklessly causing physical injury to another person; or knowingly touching another person with the intent to injure, insult or provoke; or intentionally causing another person to reasonably fear imminent bodily harm.

Often, people get charged with aggravated assault by committing what may have been a misdemeanor assault, but because they caused a serious injury or used a weapon or dangerous instrument while committing the assault, the charge is elevated to aggravated assault. There are many other ways to elevate a misdemeanor assault to an aggravated assault. To find out more about how a misdemeanor assault can be converted into a felony aggravated assault, see A.R.S. § 13-1204.

Penalties

The penalties for aggravated assault first-time convictions in Arizona can vary based on many factors. Aggravated Assault charges in Arizona range from a Class 6 felony to a Class 2 felony, with class 2 being the most serious. Additionally, Aggravated Assault can also be charged as either a “non-dangerous” or a “dangerous” offense. For the first-time offender, most non-dangerous felonies are probation or prison eligible. However, all dangerous felonies require mandatory prison.

If you have been charged with aggravated assault in Arizona, you should take it very seriously and seek representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney. Even a Class 6 felony conviction could mean prison time and affect you for the rest of your life.

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more
